The Caribbean Centre for Family and Human Rights (CARIFAM) is offering training and employment opportunities for women who are or have been victims of domestic violence.
Training and employment are being offered in an environment which understands the challenges faced by women recovering from domestic abuse. We recognize that each woman’s path to recovery is different, and that women require caring and understanding support whilst overcoming this scourge in their lives.
Homemaking can be extremely therapeutic for women. This training opportunity provides clients with a safe, secure setting where they learn key skills whilst regaining confidence and building self-esteem. Enhanced skills increase chances of employment within the hospitality sector. As well, the economic empowerment of women is a key factor in breaking the cycle of violence in their lives.
Employment and Training will be facilitated through V’s Home Organising Service, a small business owned and operated by Mrs. Cleta Jn. Charles.

Women’s Support Group
CARIFAM will facilitate, once monthly, a Support Group meeting for women enrolled in, or who have participated in the programme. This will enable continuous engagement and provide an ongoing network of support. Other women who are or have experienced domestic violence are welcome and are encouraged to participate.
From time to time, workshops and seminars will held on relevant topics geared towards personal development and managing long term personal and economic goals.
